early iris

As the spring evolves, the flowers in bloom change. As I walked in the garden on this rainy afternoon I saw my first iris of the season. I've always been fascinated by the delicate and intricate designs of these flowers.

pink pops

Maudslay State Park was created from an old estate that was full of flowering plants and trees. Walking in the woods in the season of flowers can be a delight; the colors of both azalea and rhododendron pop from the surrounding green.

a walk in the woods

This afternoon I headed to the Harold Parker State Forest for a walk in the woods. Clear skies and quiet waters allowed trees to form a perfect reflection.

I started by focusing on the full bloom of a lilac, walking close enough to smell the flowers. Then I realized it was the individual tiny flowers that were pulling me closer.

The petals of a flower open, wearing a bright color and subtle signs of decay at the same time.

forget me not

A tiny flower wears a name that asking to be remembered.

As I walked the gardens at Long Hill today I saw carpets of blue forget me nots, simply beautiful.

I find the simple beauty of a single flower to be amazing.
